Our aims are to:
Supply the best possible hardwood propagation material to the wine grape industry;
Specialise in, but not be restricted to, cool climate varieties and clones;
Gain funds from our cutting program to invest back into research and vine improvement projects for the wine industry.
AHVII achieves its aims through:
Active involvement with growers, who enable the establishment of high health Source Blocks on their properties.
Annual testing and monitoring of these Source Blocks to enable the supply of dormant cuttings that are true to type and of known disease status. Source Blocks are tested to Vine Industry Nursery Association (VINA) health protocols and accredited by an independent auditor appointed by VINA.
